The Democracy of Melondonia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Freedom Party with a fair hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.617 billion Melondonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cerulle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Melondonian economy, worth 430 trillion Novas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,051 Novas, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Facial disfigurement is a leading cause of supervillainy, religion makes people horny, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, and condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Melondonia's national animal is the Snowshoe Hare, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Melondonia is ranked 9,206th in the world and 15th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 45.7 Bank.
